Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Grammy Award-winning country singer Trisha Yearwood throws her hat into the celebrity cookbook ring with this cheerful if uninspired collection of home-style Southern recipes. Among family and friends, Yearwood is known for her cooking, she writes, and a foreword by her husband and fellow singer, Garth Brooks, explains that Yearwood's secret is that she cooks with love, a technique not fully explored in this book. Aimed at the kitchen beginner, the book presents a list of necessary equipment and hints on substitutions, like making confectioner's sugar from granulated sugar, and is sprinkled throughout with helpful notes from Yearwood and her mother and sister-both of whom are co-writers. International stardom clearly hasn't dampened Yearwood's enthusiasm for down-home treats like Pimento Cheese Spread, Hashbrown Casserole, and Cranberry Salad with Cool Whip, Cream Cheese and Gelatin. Her family members make frequent appearances in the many color photographs and in the form of favorite dishes like Jack's Brunswick Stew and Gwen's Fried Chicken with Milk Gravy. Yearwood is an advocate for no-fuss, simple cooking with plenty of supermarket shortcuts, and this volume will most appeal to fans who want to get a little closer to Yearwood and Brooks (like a chance to recreate the celebs' wedding cake at home). (Apr.)

Library Journal

Award-winning country-music star Yearwood grew up in Georgia and now lives in Oklahoma with her husband, Garth Brooks, and children. Several years ago, her mother, Gwen, and sister, Beth, put together a notebook of favorite family recipes for Trisha's birthday, which in turn inspired this compilation. All the recipes are simple and range from community-cookbook standards like Chicken Baked in Cornflake Crumbs and Pink [Gelatin] Salad to Southern classics such as Garlic Grits Casserole. There are color photographs throughout, along with personal anecdotes from the three Yearwood women. Buy for demand.

Potato Salad
Serves 12

When it comes to potato salad, you like what you like. This recipe is mayonnaise-based, but if you like a mustard-based potato salad, just experiment a little. Add some yellow mustard and leave out a little bit of the mayonnaise. Make these recipes your own by finding out what works for you. Our traditional potato salad uses peeled potatoes, but unpeeled work too, and the skins add some color to your dish.

5 pounds red potatoes, peeled and cut in ½-inch ­cubes
2 teaspoons salt, plus more to ­taste
4 hard­-­boiled eggs, peeled, and ­diced
3⁄4 cup ­mayonnaise
½ cup sweet pickle ­relish
Black ­pepper

Place the potatoes in a medium saucepan or pressure cooker (see Note). Add 2 teaspoons salt and enough water to cover the potatoes. Boil the potatoes for 30 minutes, or until they are tender when pierced with the point of a knife but hold their shape. Drain the potatoes, transfer them to a large mixing bowl, and allow them to cool completely. Add the chopped eggs, mayonnaise, and sweet relish, and fold gently to combine. Add salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

From Gwen:
Don’t overcook the potatoes. They should hold their shape during mixing.

Note: The potatoes may be cooked in a pressure cooker. Sprinkle salt over the potatoes. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions and pressure-cook for 5 minutes. Release the pressure immediately and drain and cool the potatoes.

Sweet Potato Soufflé
Serves 8

This is a nice variation on regular sweet potatoes for a Thanksgiving side dish. It's almost a dessert, it's so sweet!

   • 5 medium sweet potatoes (about
9 ounces each)
   • 2 large eggs
   • 1 cup granulated sugar
   • 1 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, at room temperature
   • 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
   • 1/2 cup milk
   • Pinch of salt

Topping

   • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
   • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
   • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
   • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Grease a 2 1/2-quart baking dish with butter. On a foil-covered baking sheet, bake the sweet potatoes for 1 hour, or until they are soft. When cool enough to handle, peel the potatoes, place the flesh in a large mixing bowl, and mash until very smooth. Add the eggs, sugar, butter, vanilla, milk, and salt. Combine well with an electric mixer or hand mixer. Turn the mixture into the baking dish.

2. In a medium bowl, stir together the pecans, brown sugar, flour, and butter until thoroughly combined. Spoon the mixture over the sweet potatoes, making an even layer. Bake the casserole for 30 minutes, or until slightly browned. Let the casserole sit for 5 minutes before serving.

    A reviewer

    I am a collector or recipe books, magazines, anything I can get my hands on. I have been looking for a cookbook like this for a long time. I actually considered writing one just like this myself. If you want the basic recipes that everyone needs...this has it! This book is full of all those recipes that mom or grandma made that you can't find without some whacky ingredient added. It's perfectly simple and the best $ I've spent on a cookbook in a long time! Well done Trisha!

    Love The Book

    I really enjoy having this cookbook. I love the recipes and the stories. I've made the berry cobbler several times and each time, my husband can't get enough of it.

    Love her music, Love her recipes!

    I have been a Trisha fan for years so when i saw she had a cookbook out i couldn't wait to check it out. I have had the book for a couple of weeks now and have tried several of the recipes, they were a huge hit with the whole family. I love the stories she tells about many of the recipes and the little extra tips on the sides of the pages. The recipes are simple and easy to follow which i need with my busy life! I feel more confident in my cooking after seeing how easy it can be, I have been a 'box' cook for a long time, I think i am becoming a 'scratch' cook and I Love it! Thanks Trisha!!

    The woman can cook!

    I picked this book up a couple times before I finally made the purchase. I am so glad I finally bought it! This is actual food that everyone knows and loves. The recipes are easy to cook and they taste great. The tortilla soup, brownies, chicken and broccoli casserole and the biscuits are super. I have tried four of the recipes and I am going to keep trying more. This is the first cookbook that I have tried more than just a couple of the recipes. <BR/><BR/>I wish she would write more. I know these are recipes that were Yearwood family specific. But, I would buy another cookbook that Trisha has handpicked the recipes. Love it!<BR/><BR/>11/11/08 - Since writing the above I have tried the macaroni and cheese and the sausage balls. The macaroni and cheese was excellent. I had never made my own cheese sauce before and this was easy and the taste was perfect. The sausage balls were also good, but something I had made from Bisquick before. However, they were also good and something my daughter, who is 18 and has never cooked before, enjoyed making. So thanks again - excellent - HIGHLY recommend this book.

    My favorite cookbook

    This cookbook is a Must Have! I just recieved it 5 days ago and I have tried out the peach cobbler and brownies with coconut frosting. Both are wonderful! I love reading the stories that go along with each recipe. Money well spent on this one!

    Buy your local junior league cookbook instead!

    It will have the same old recipes and the money will go to a good cause. Boring recipes in a coffee table picture book.

    Fantastic

    The recipes are straightforward, the stories that accompany them are wonderful, and the photos are beautiful. This was obviously a labor of love from Trisha and her family.

    Good Food and Good Stories

    Not only are the recipes in this cookbook outstanding, the comments by Tricia, Gwen and Beth make it a great book to read. Being from Tricia's hometown, I have had the pleasure of tasting several of these dishes and they are every bit as good as they sound.

    A GREAT DOWNHOME SOUTHERN COOKBOOK

    Being raised in a southern home myself, these recipes remind me of my childhood. Trisha has simple, easy-to-follow recipes. After using this cookbook my next purchase will be Trisha's second cookbook. Keep it up Trisha!
